Update: Tuesday classes before 11 a.m. canceled

Posted on October 29, 2012

Classes on Tuesday morning scheduled before 11 a.m. are canceled. The college  plans to resume classes at 11 a.m., providing the college does not experience extended power outages.

Morning classes are canceled for Tuesday to allow for clean up and safe travel to campus. Classes beginning at 11 a.m. and afterward will be held as scheduled.

Because conditions may vary throughout southern New England, some faculty members may choose to cancel an individual class if they are unable to reach campus safely. However, students should plan to attend any regularly scheduled classes unless they are informed of a cancellation directly by their professor.

If necessary, further updates will be distributed by the college’s emergency notification system as well as by email and on the web.

In the event of an emergency, please call Wheaton Public Safety at 508-285-5051 or at 508-286-8213.

For Staff and Faculty

Non-essential staff members should plan on reporting to campus for work at 11 a.m.

Staff in departments that are considered essential, which includes dining halls and all physical plant employees, should plan on reporting to campus as regularly scheduled. Supervisors are responsible for coordinating schedules so that services continue.

Any faculty or staff member concerned about personal safety or unable to get to campus is responsible for notifying supervisors or canceling individual classes. Please refer to the college weather policy regarding reporting for work on campus: http://wheatoncollege.edu/hr/2012/09/07/inclement-weather-policy/
